Nominations are now open for the Community Football Awards and local Assembly Member Lesley Griffiths is encouraging people in Wrexham to nominate their unsung heroes and football clubs.

Presented by McDonald’s in partnership with the Welsh FA, the Awards honour and recognise the people and volunteers who make a real difference to grassroots football in their local community.

There are a number of categories in which clubs, coaches and players can be nominated, including Club of the Year, Player of the Year and Volunteer of the Year.

People can nominate by visiting www.mcdonalds.co.uk/awards, with the nomination process closing at the end of March.

Last year, the Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to local resident Paul Hooson, honouring the 35 plus years he has invested into Brickfield Rangers.  During this time, the grassroots club has grown to become one of the strongest in Wales.

Assembly Member for Wrexham Lesley Griffiths said:

“Wrexham is a proud, passionate footballing town and there are countless volunteers in the area who work week in and week out, whatever the weather, to provide opportunities for young football players.”

“Although the volunteers rarely seek any special praise for what they do, I believe it is important we recognise their contribution to the community and remind them all their hard work does not go unnoticed.”

“I would encourage people in Wrexham to nominate their local unsung heroes.  Last year, one of our local clubs received national recognition and it would be great if this could happen again.”

Following 6-weeks of friendly competition between 13 eateries across the County, the Wrexham Destination Partnership are one step closer to revealing the burger which will reveal a true taste of Wrexham for St. David’s Day.

Since January, each venue has designed their interpretation of the ‘Wrexham Burger’ – working with local producers to source meat and ingredients.  They were each challenged to promote the burger to their customers, talk about it online and really get it noticed in their restaurants.

Screen Shot 2015-02-17 at 11.24.40Six months before the curtain goes up on this year’s Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, a dedicated team of backroom staff are already well ahead with preparations to ensure the great festival goes as smoothly as ever.

And getting an early start on the myriad arrangements is always absolutely vital to the success of the event according to Eisteddfod company secretary Sian Eagar.

Sian, now in her third year in the post, said: “There’s quite a long planning process so that we can secure all the competitors from around the world for the week of the Eisteddfod and put together a programme of concerts which will have the widest possible appeal to our visitors, and naturally all this takes time to arrange.

wstWrexham and Chester football clubs are launching a campaign ahead of next month’s derby clash at the Glyndwr University Racecourse Ground, and are calling on ordinary fans to #ReclaimTheGame
